As CptDanko suggested, I have decided to go with the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 as I feel it is more future-proofed-ness. smile.gif

Not much "future proofnes" there except for slipping in a top line Vishera, everything new will go DDR4 and other goodies..If it is to improve more it will have to be new platform..

reality, how much difference will DDR4 RAM and other tech make? In reality, new tech will be very expensive (like ssds were at first) and only the super-high end will get the new stuff. i.e thunderbolt is only available on high end intel boards.

Also, my little CPU won't be compatible with socket AM4, which is the one which will most likely get new stuff.
